I've noticed we now have a post "edit history" feature to track every poster's edits to their posts. Isn't this a little over the top? As a professional editor and writer I do a lot of editing (nitpicking) of my own posts and I don''t necessarily want the whole world to see what a freakin' nitpicker I am about my own writings. In fact, moreso than I ever was back in the day when I was a curmudgeonly Speeling & Gramer cop -- you guys got off light!

IMO, just because we have a new vBulletin feature doesn't mean we have to use it.

Two questions:

1. Is there a good reason for forcing a universally viewable edit history on all users?
2. Why don't users have the option to disable the feature under "User Options"?

Where are you seeing this?

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

It should only show up on posts you have edited. I don't believe others are seeing the history. Can you see it on other's posts, Nick?
